Orchestra is a full year music and performance course open to students of all playing levels. Our group is made up of exclusively strings; violin, viola, cello, and bass. Our main purpose is to increase literacy and performance techniques of players through classical music. Upon teacher approval any OHHS student is able to join basic orchestra; however, auditions and/or previous experience is required for promotion to intermediate and advanced orchestra as well as for promoted seat placement. Orchestra members perform at school concerts and events along with the band and choir as well as solely orchestra-based events such as county festivals.
